    MESSAGE FROM ASHLEY SPEAS 

     
    Executive Principal WHS
     
     
    Parents, Students, and Community Members,
     
    I have the greatest job ever which is to be the principal of a culture that promotes excellence for every child at West High School. West High School is dedicated to every student’s success. West has a supportive administrative team that has extremely high expectations for our teachers and students. Our faculty and staff is dedicated to making sure students come first and are determined to continue to mold generations of life-long learners. We have a desire and passion to push our students to the next level academically with implementing the use of 1:1 technology in every classroom. We also want to continue to partner with the community to strengthen the opportunities for our students. Our greatest achievements would not be possible without the support of the parents and community we serve. We are who we are because of our school community. We are #OneWest.
     
    I look forward to being a part of our team as we push our school to success for 2021-22!
     
    Sincerely, 
     
    Dr. Ashley Speas
    Executive Principal
    West High School
